What To Do After An Accident

Mark Vogt: If you’ve been in a car accident, it’s a scary time for you, and we understand that. So the first thing that you can do is talk to somebody, talk to an attorney, because you’re going to get calls quickly. You’re going to get calls from an insurance company of the at-fault driver, and their goal is to lock you down on the statement that is advantageous to them and try to throw some money at you…try to take advantage of an economic situation that you may or may not be in. So that’s the first thing that’s going to happen to you. When you get an attorney involved, it doesn’t mean that you’re suing anyone. What it means is that you have someone who understands what they’re trying to do and protects you from that.

Jason Helsel: Even if you think you’ve partially caused the accident, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim. That doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to receive compensation for your injuries and for your accident. Even if there is…they call it comparative negligence, or comparitave fault…Even if you think that there might be some of those issues in the case, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a case.
